Cassie Shocks World With Shaved Head

Somali pirates are promising payback for their fallen comrades and the war in Afghanistan is heating up, but these stories are not the most important of the day — not on a day when Cassie shaved half her head and dropped her new look on the world via a Twitter bomb. Why did the model-turned-singer cut off her beautiful locks?

Sometimes in life, you need a change. Something deeper than what you thought you were capable of. Something that displays the “I don’t give a fuck” attitude that was always present, but never showcased. Something that makes you look at this whole wide world a differently… & something that will shock your mother, but make her call you a ROCK STAR…

Well, Cassie’s mother isn’t the only person who’s shocked. Her fans and fellow artists are acting as if they’ve been blindsided — and everyone’s taking sides. Some people love it (including Estelle and rumored boyfriend Diddy) and others think it’s nothing short of hideous. Fabolous, clearly in the latter camp, Twittered his opinion: “Looks like one of the haircuts from Edward Scissorhands.”

While we’re not sure that a haircut can turn someone into a rock star, we think Cassie would look stunning even if she were dressed in a giant paper bag. What do you think of her new do?
